Brent’s new Local Plan sets a clear vision for the future and will guide the borough’s development through to 2041.

The 2019-2041 Local Plan, which Brent’s Full Council agreed on February 24th 2022, is an important planning document that will help deliver the council’s priorities.


It sets out the strategy for growth and meeting housing needs, protecting existing employment areas and providing new infrastructure such as health facilities.

The plan encourages good growth and determines what can be built and where to ensure all of Brent’s diverse communities’ benefit.

Policies within the plan will also play an essential role in protecting and enhancing open spaces and heritage assets, tackling climate change and supporting more sustainable travel.

Councillor Shama Tatler, the lead member for Regeneration Property and Planning, said:

“The Local Plan sets out our long-term vision for the borough. It will help us improve local places and deliver good growth whilst retaining those parts that are special.

“It provides a blueprint for all future development that will provide greater certainty for our residents, businesses and investors.

“This includes eight Growth Areas where the majority of the new homes, commercial space and supporting social infrastructure will be built.

“By 2041, Brent is expected to be home to around 65,000 more people. Our Local Plan is helping us to plan ahead and prepare for the future, this includes building an additional 46,000 homes along with the right facilities, jobs and infrastructure to support our communities of today and tomorrow.

“The adoption of our Local Plan is a significant step on our journey to creating a fairer, more equal Brent and a borough of opportunities for all.”
